only 9 days left to stop the automatic across- the-board spending cuts. that's why the pentagon is expected to announce a plan to furlough nearly 800,000 civilian employees one day each week beginning in april. that's essentially a 20% pay cut. federal law requires the pentagon to warn congress of furloughs at least 45 days in advance. exceptions here will include political appointees and people whose job functions are considered necessary to protect life and property. but some d.o.d. civilian firefighters, police officers, nurses and other emergency workers could still be furloughed. if these furloughs go on for some time, they'll add up to around a month of lost pay by the end of september. warnings are going out about the possible impact of these cutses on our local and national economies. the. spoke out yesterday and local leaders are figuring out exactly what's at stake. >> montgomery county alone in terms of this tax base, each day based on our estimates is a possibly $500,000. >> ten days of furloughs equal $120 million in lost income in federal employees for the county.
